I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday seasons and is gearing up for a great start to 2013. I couldn't be more excited, because The Madman's Daughter comes out one month from today, January 29!
To celebrate, I'm giving away an ARC of The Madman's Daughter PLUS two very special books. I'm lucky to have several writing friends and mentors in the YA literature community, and two of them were kind enough to blurb my book. To thank them for their support, I'm also giving away a copy of Veronica Rossi's debut Under the Never Sky, and Carrie Ryan's debut The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
Hey YOU! These could all be YOURS:
Carrie's book The Forest of Hands and Teeth was one of the first YA titles I read that just absolutely grabbed me and still hasn't let go. She was writing about a terrifying zombie future when everyone else was writing paranormal romances, and I love that about her. She's just announced a new four-book middle grade series she's co-writing with her husband JP, and I am dying to read it. Here's what Carrie had to say about The Madman's Daughter:
"A deft twist on a familiar classic, The Madman's Daughter has the best of everything: beautiful writing, breakneck pacing, a pulse-pounding mystery, and an irresistible romance."
I was lucky enough to get to know Veronica Rossi, author of Under the Never Sky and the upcoming Through The Ever Night, because we share not only the same agency but the same publisher. Veronica offered me lots of advice when I first got my book deal, so I begged my editor for an ARC of Under the Never Sky when it came out last year, and fell in love with it. Here's Veronica's take on The Madman's Daughter:
"Romantic, haunting, and full of spine-tingling thrills, The Madman's Daughter kept me reading late into the night."
If you haven't read both of these great authors' books yet, here's your chance! Just leave a comment on this blog post to enter to win all three books. Contest is open for US/Canadian residents. On Friday, January 4, I'll pick a winner and announce it here, so be sure to check back then!
